This was a very decent read. I hoped it would be more horror related, but it wasn’t. It still made for an interesting story.
Although presented as a horror, I truly didn’t feel like it was creepy enough or delved deep enough into the subject to give me the shivers at all. But we did have the rumors of the Headless Horseman, who would murder people and had his ways of doing so. That was the most I got out of the horror. It was also poised as a bit of a mystery. Julian Crane doesn’t believe Ichabod was taken by this horror creature because it doesn’t exist, and insist on a man having killed him. The only question he has to answer is who has done it?
This also had a historical fiction feel to it, seeing as it was set in 1800. The descriptions in the book were lovely, and I loved being set in this time period. I am someone who always loves historical fiction, and even though it wasn’t the focus the author did use it to make a great setting. It had a good impact on the storyline as well. You do have to be a bit give and take though. I had a hard time believing that a single rumor could ruin someone’s reputation when there is no evidence to back the words yet, but in that time period it is understandable.
The main character, Julian Crane, was too confident and hot headed for my liking. I felt like he went about some things the wrong way, and I couldn’t really connect to him much. However, I really liked Hans Van Ripper who was quiet and kept to his own business (I could imagine myself being like him most) and Katarina who is a rich woman. She makes her husband the man he is in the book, and is kind and graceful. She really does bring out the best in him, and I can certainly admire a woman like that!
The middle of the book seemed to deviate from the main plot a bit and I didn’t feel like a lot of the story was necessary. We could have easily cut a lot of the scenes in the middle and still had a book that made sense. It was a bit slow when we got off topic, but as soon as we were back on the right track I was happy enough.
The ending of the book is okay. It was a good set up for book two, but it didn’t necessarily blow me away or creep me out, which I think was the intent.
In conclusion this was a pretty mixed review. There were some things I did like, some things I didn’t. Buy overall it was a good enough read.
